This section of the Grand Union Canal is controlled by the Central Association of London and Provincial Angling Clubs [CALPAC] - see Clubs - Greater London. This coarse fishing venue offers outstanding roach fishing as well as good shoals of bream. Perch, pike, eels some carp and chub are also present.
Depths range from a couple of feet up to five feet. Pole fishing is the normal route to success with casters, maggots, pinkies, breadflake and bloodworm proving successful. Boat traffic in the winter is light and never excessive in the summer months although watch your pole sections as bikers and joggers are common hazards. There is plenty of free parking with decent access to the towpath including a trolley-friendly ramp at the Blue Anchor Bridge.
